Mumbai, March 26: First came the attack, then justification. This is how Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) is justifying its hooliganism and trying to play "drought politics" in Maharashtra.

After attacking two offices of corporate house Indiabulls, leaders of MNS have justified the act and said that it "reflects public anger" against government over drought in Maharashtra.

"The party was just reflecting the anger and the anxiety of the common man in the face of the government's inability to deal with the drought," said a MNS leader.

Akhilesh Chaubey, General secretary (legal), MNS told television channels,"The drought was not a "natural calamity", but due to a lack of proper policy governing the allocation and distribution of water in the state."

"We are really worried about the fact that it is March and we do not have even nine percent of the water at Jalna, Beed and other places. By 30 March I don't think there will be any water even to drink", said Chaubey.

"They are just showing their anger to the people", he added.

On Monday, March 25 suspected MNS workers attacked the Indiabulls office in Amravati, a day after two MNS workers were arrested when several of them went on a rampage, attacking the the company's office in Mumbai.

Addressing a rally at Amravati on Sunday, March 24, MNS supremo Raj Thackeray said that water meant for drought-hit farmers was being diverted to private companies and had named Indiabulls as a major beneficiary.

Few hours after Raj's speech, MNS members carried out attacks on offices of Indiabulls.
